Hand Hygiene. December 7 – 13 is National Handwashing Awareness Week. Keeping hands clean is one of the most important ways to prevent the spread of infection and illness.  In healthcare settings, handwashing can prevent potentially fatal infections from spreading from patient to patient and from patient to healthcare worker and vice-versa. Here's a quick reminder about when to perform hand-hygiene as well as some ideas for monitoring staff performance. PDF

MRSA - Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus. MRSA is making headlines! MRSA usually affects people with weakened immune systems. Healthcare-associated MRSA is a prevalent nosocomial pathogen in the U.S. But now some otherwise healthy people are getting the infection. Community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA) affects people who spend time together in groups, such as schools, college dorms, or military barracks. When lots of people come together and are likely to touch the same surfaces, have skin-to-skin contact, or share equipment that has not been cleaned, an infection can spread faster than it would otherwise. That's why recent MRSA infections involved athletes in gyms and locker rooms. Use the program to educate yourself about MRSAs. PDF
